I LOVE video games. I always have, Im not the best but im also not the worst. Mario has always been a favorite of mine and I needed a pencil holder for my desk. So i decided to make one look like a warp pipe form the Mario games.
This project is super easy and cheap!
I used my miter saw to cut the pvc pipe to length. This could be done with a hand saw and you would propably get nicer edges.
The couplings are dangerous to cut on the miter saw. So i stuck it on the end of the pvc and either cut it flush to the pipe or left a bit of a gap.
Watch your fingers!
I used black pvc glue since i bought black pvc. My intention was to leave the inside black but then decided to paint the inside.
I spray painted the test caps black and covered them with the black glue.
Then I used a small amount of glue to attach the end cap to the pvc tube.
Once that was dry I then attached the coupling to the pipe with the glue and flushed them up by pushing them together on my work surface.
Make sure to spray on multiple light even coats so that the paint wont drip.
These came out looking pretty cool. I am going to make some more in the summer when its warmer so I get a better finish. Let me know in the comments if you liked this project or if you made one.
